    Yep. The main reason I'm guessing is that liquor is legal everywhere and cannabis ain't in most places, in the US anyway. My employer has this weird hang up about us following the law.

    :D

    Eventually it will be legal, the law doesn't regulate morality, morality regulates the law. Here in NY 70% of the public is pro legalization, eventually the demand is going to be such that any politician looking to get reelected will have to listen to the will of the people. Although New York is a pretty liberal state for sure, the red states will be the last to fall.

    On a lighter note, I'm curious what other businesses could be created through the legalization and regulation of marijuana. I know that it's been used to make rope, clothing and even protein powder, I wonder what other new industries could be created by entrepreneurs.

    It's time we stop feeding fat cat mobsters and cartels, did we not learn from the Prohibition when we made Capone and the moonshiners rich?

    Yeah. It should be treated as alcohol in that you shouldn’t be driving on it.

    Weed never made guitar more enjoyable, it just made me paranoid. It's not for me.

    S, the problem is it stays in the system. You can come up HOT two weeks after smoking. Eventually they will make a smoke-o-meter until then? You are screwed. I know many think it is legal, I'm sure there is a Database, get hurt at work-hmmmm I see he is a "user." No coverage. Weed+mind drugs will never be in favour. THE MAN wants drunks+prescription addicts-not seers.

    I also haven’t been pulled over since I was 17. Sure it might happen but I’m really not concerned. They would only pull me over and test me if they thought I was impaired. I give no one any reason to think that. :)

    S, I guess you don't carry weed on you? I can smell SKUNK from 300 yards. Much like drunks, they eat a mint, I smell Gin and mint. I smell alot of SKUNK mating with gum.

    No sir. Not when i can avoid it. Besides, if a cop can smell a bag of weed in my car while I’m driving by at 60km/h, he deserves to give me a ticket! Lol

    Once again, the cops are simply doing their jobs, it's the politicians that are the problem. If people want real change, press your local representative's balls up against the burner. They give the orders, cops simply follow them.

    N, I do not blame cops. Luckily, I don't do ANYTHING. I drink Coffee. I just sit and observe. If I was undercover I could make 80 busts daily. I see alot of "smarties" hitting dug-outs while driving and walking. I buy coffee at WaWA. I can pick out what drug...

    "He is nervous+itchy=opiods. I smell stale beer=drunk. I see wristbands and red eyes=weed.........

    S, "old heads" know-keep in covert. Young +shiny thinks the world is their friend-they flaunt their drug use. I could smoke and nobody saw any change. I did not get "dreamy+dumb." I pounded the pavement. My wife would be amazed how at ease I was around people-zero anxiety. I've always been a stoic. Once I got "dosed" before a football game in 9th grade, somebody put a tab in my Gatorade. I stood next to the coach the whole game discussing strategies. Little did he know that he looked like a flounder to me, I saw both his eyes on one side of his face.
